In addition to this, all Block Development Officers , Jt.

Any interested person who intends to enroll his/her name in the electoral roll of concerned Assembly Constituency or delete/ transhift any name from or rectify any entry in respect of any elector in the existing roll may apply to the Electoral Registration Officer in the prescribed form.

After receiving the application the Electoral Registration Officer will dispose the same by calling the applicant personally in a hearing and/or through field enquiry as and when necessary. Accordingly supplements of Electoral Roll are made and published, copies of which are given to all political parties and also made available at the Municipality and Gram Panchayat Offices for inspection by the public.

Normally a summary/special revision of Electoral Roll is being conducted every year, when Designated Officers (mostly Assistant Teachers of Primary Schools) sit at the polling stations for receiving claims & objections in respect of existing entries in the Electoral Roll, which are subsequently disposed off by the Assistant Electoral Registration Officers through hearing/enquiry at the Gram Panchayat level by serving notices in that regard on the applicants. Appeal, if any in this regard may be made to the Electoral Registration Officers.

Every elector should possess an Elector's Photo Identity Card (EPIC) which is prepared and distributed to the electors free of cost as per the guidelines of the Election Commission of India. Arrangements of taking photographs and delivering the EPIC to the concerned electors are usually made at Gram Panchayat level and also at the block level. For getting a new EPIC, duplicate EPIC or to rectify any error in the respect of the photograph or any other entry in the existing EPIC, an elector has to apply to the ERO in the specified forms.
